Google Chrome Adds Music and Videos Controller in Chrome Toolbar

Chrome users can now control the music and videos they are playing in any of the Chrome Tab via a Controller present in Chrome Toolbar. Chrome team call this new option Media Hub. Well, Google Chrome hasn’t rolled out a new version to bring this new option as I didn’t find it on in the same version yesterday. So, Chrome team has injected this feature via a server update, or maybe they are testing it, and I am the only one to spot it. Do let us know in the comments down below if you spot the same feature in your browser.

Chrome for Android already has this feature. For example, When you play a YouTube video in your Chrome browser, you able to spot the controller in the notification panel. Here it is How it looks like.

Now, Chrome team has brought this feature in the Chrome for web too. In Chrome Browser for desktop, you can spot the same controller on the right side of the Omnibox (Chrome URL bar). Here it is How it looks.

Do note that you spot this controller only when playing a video or audio in any of the tabs in Chrome.

Now, In the controller, we find only three options, i.e. Pause, Play Previous, and Play Next. So, the controller gives you that much control over the videos or music playing in your Chrome Browser.

So, What do you think about this new option in the Chrome Browser?
